I'll put a warning about it in the OP.

Does it scan for covers automatically, or do you have to change a setting or click a button?
Automatically. Already looked for a way to change it in the settings.

Wish I knew how the program is making connections, and to what server of GameFAQs. If we can somehow change that it would be possible to get it fixed. But we'd still need source access.

Darn shame really, because this was very nice to use. I could only enjoy it for a short while. Sad
Updated the OP with a warning.

And it's a shame because Dexbonus is long gone. I don't think we'll get a change, so the only way would be to block the connection with a firewall or something.
I found a way to maybe disable the outgoing connections at least. (Hopefully, going to test it now, if I get banned again it'll be a permanent one lol).

In settings there's an option that says "Download Game Information", this should also contain the Game Images.. going to test that now.
I used the link in his profile to send Dexbonus an email. I don't know if it will do any good, but it's worth a shot.
To turn off the Downloading of Game Information, follow the below steps:
  1. Once PCSX2Bonus is opened, go to Edit
  2. Choose Settings
  3. In here, click the General tab.
  4. Uncheck the option Download Game Information and press Ok.

It got my attention Tongue2

First off, let me apologize to everyone who has gotten an IP ban from gamefaqs because of my tool. The reason this is happening is because gamefaqs seems to have changed around their site structure at some point, so the xpath that the program uses to scrape the information is obviously now invalid. This causes alot of requests to be made VERY quickly to alot of pages and it doesn't end up actually accomplishing anything.

Secondly, the lack of updates. I'm aware that I kind of left this program hanging without much word to the community and I really wish I could have communicated to you guys better how and why that happened. (stuff got intense in both my personal and professional life to say the least)

I apologize.

Regardless of the circumstances that have led up to this point, I can't very well leave the program in its current state and just tell people to deal with the IP bans.

That being said, I no longer have the source code for the program as it is now. I have no intention of leaving you guys hanging again though Tongue2

Expect a rewrite and re-release of PCSX2Bonus sometime within the week. I wish I could give a definitive date for when I'll have it finished, but seeing as how I'm just one man I can only do so much so fast Tongue2 (the TV mode is especially annoying to code due to the gamepad support)

Once again guys, I'm sorry.
Awesome Dex, thanks for that swift response. Looking forward to the future release. Laugh

And don't worry about having gone inactive. We all have our personal demons to deal with once in a while. And you still did come back in the end, so hats off to you.
Oh wow. That is awesome!

And yeah, I really admire the fact that you came right back(almost instantly) when this came up. That shows real dedication. Life happens to all of us, so no foul there.
